In breaking news, the hacktivist group known as Anonymous has taken down a number of Brazilian sites, related to the World Cup in the South American country.

Anonymous hackers dubbed the operation “#OpWorldCup.” Many tweets related to the operation can be found by searching for Hash-tags#tangodown#Anonymous#Brazil and #Worldcup.

Why target the World Cup in Brazil? Hacker News Bulletin writes the following explanation:

Anonymous group is really angry with the Lavish spending on the games in Brazil and the country is struggling to provide basic services, “We will not stay quiet,” one of the hacker says.

Earlier this week, Hackers already attacked the Brazil’s Foreign Ministry computer networks and leaked dozens of confidential emails. In the attack a hacker AnonManifest used phishing tactics to hack into the Foreign Ministry’s databases and access emails.

A hacker dubbed Che Commodore says, “We have already conducted late-night tests to see which of the sites are more vulnerable. “We have a plan of attack.”

“This time we are targeting the sponsors of the World Cup,” he said in a Skype conversation with Reuters from an undisclosed location in Brazil…

Brazilians are angry with their government for pumping millions of dollars into the funding of an eight-week extravagance and that money being spent on the World Cup is instead desperately needed for education, sanitisation, hospitals and the eradication of violence, drugs and weapons from their streets.

A partial list of the hacked sites are as follows:
